I have a query regarding the internal scaning for pregnent women, does internal scanning make the women napaak?


I have a query regarding the internal scaning for pregnent women, does internal scanning werein they insert the probe with medications deep into the vegina make the women napaak, or does she require to do gusul or only Ablution will suffice?


Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wabrakatuh,


Internal scanning does not make a woman impure. She does not have to make ghusl.In all probability; the inserted medical instrument will have impurities when removed from the internal of a woman. As such, her wudhu will be invalidated.


And Allah Ta'āla Knows Best,
